Canada is a real country that is featured, and parodied, often throughout the series. It and its citizens have appeared often in many episodes. Most things in Canada are depicted as being square-shaped or rectangular, even wheels on automobiles.

Canadians are portrayed as having oval shaped flappy Pac-Man-like heads with black beady eyes. The rest of their bodily layout is very rectangular and straight, and in some episodes, individuals are depicted as wearing shirts with their first initials emblazoned on the front. They speak with an exaggerated accent and usually end all of their sentences with 'Eh', 'Buddy', 'Pal', 'Guy' or 'Friend'. They also pronounce 'about' as 'aboot', and 'sorry' as 'soorry'.
Often, Canadian celebrities portrayed on South Park do not have the distinguishing features that traditional Canadian characters do. This is likely to make them more identifiable.
Some Canadians are prominent characters. Ike Broflovski, the adopted brother of Kyle Broflovski originally came from Canada. Also, the comedy duo Terrance and Phillip come from Canada and have been featured prominently over the seasons.
Despite not being Canadian himself, Saddam Hussein is depicted with the flappy, oval shaped head, and Canadian accent and mannerisms in the show, along with his Iraqi bodyguards. However, he is heavily obsessed with Canada. In "Terrance and Phillip in Not Without My Anus", with help from Scott the Dick, he gains access to Canada and attempts to take it over. He is foiled by the Canadians though, who all fart at the same time during a Football game and stop him. In "It's Christmas in Canada", he again tries to take the country over by posing as the new Prime Minister and making strange laws. He is exposed by the boys though and once again foiled from taking over Canada.
Inuit appear in the episode "Royal Pudding". Scott the Dick, Ugly Bob, and Ike come across them while looking for the soon to be princess of Canada. It is stated in the episode that they hate Canadians for taking over the country.
The culture of Canada tends to revolve around toilet humor, especially fart jokes as seen in several episodes featuring Canadians. The popular Canadian duo, Terrance and Phillip, are shown to constantly use this type of gag in their routines. It is also a known fact that the majority of the Canadian entertainment industry relies on Terrance and Phillip.
Canadian culture seems to be based on exaggerated stereotypes. It depicts all Canadians as loving Kraft Dinner and Maple Syrup. The Canadians also seem to like baseball in "Terrance and Phillip in Not Without My Anus" and Shakespearean theater in "Terrance and Phillip: Behind the Blow". Although Canada held its own war against America in the South Park movie, the Canadians were almost completely helpless to stop Saddam Hussein from taking over Canada, having to rely on the power of farts to save their country, and live in constant fear of another American invasion, as they hid from sight when the boys crash landed in Canada. Once they were sure they were not invading, they became friendly and welcoming (except for Scott, because he's a dick).
The economy of Canada is based on Terrance and Phillip, with more than 1/3rd of the economy depending on Terrance and Phillip. Terrance and Phillip's show is on the Canada Channel.
The American-Canadian War
This event took place in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. This war broke out after the boys saw the Terrance and Phillip movie Asses of Fire, and Sheila Broflovski started an Organization entitled MAC (Mothers Against Canada) in order to ban the movie and lead a nationwide protest against Canada and Canadian products. She receives the support of then-president Bill Clinton, and places Terrance and Phillip under citizens arrest while they are on the Conan O'Brien show. Canada responds to this by bombing Baldwin's mansion, which leads the two countries to declare war on each other. Canada bombs the Arquette residence and in retaliation America leads a full-scale invasion of Toronto. All Canadian citizens residing in America are forced into death camps, or 'Happy Camps'. The Canadians launch a preemptive strike against America but this is repulsed. However, their agents get as far as Colorado. Terrance and Phillip are scheduled to be executed by electrocution at a USO show, but interrupted by a Canadian attack and they are saved by Eric Cartman.
The battle stops when Sheila Broflovski kills Terrance and Phillip, allowing Hell to open up to Earth and bringing Satan and Saddam Hussein to rule for a million years. Satan decides against it though and kills Saddam. He grants Kenny McCormick one wish for helping him stand up to Saddam despite Satan, which was for everything to go back to the way it was before the war. Everyone who died in the events leading up to the battle come back to life, and the friendship between America and Canada is restored, but Kenny is still dead and rises up to Heaven as an angel.
In the Season 12 episode, "Canada on Strike", The World Canadian Bureau (Abbreviated as the WGA) leader Stephen Abootman leads all of Canada into a national strike after the U.S. does not respect Canada on "National Canadian Appreciation Day". They demand respect and "Some of that Internet money" for Canada. They are internationally ignored though and are replaced by the Danish. The strike causes many Canadians to die from starvation and disease. In the end, the rest of the world gives Canada coupons to Bennigans and bubble gum for them to end the Strike. Stephen Abootman and The World Canadian Bureau declare it a victory, but Terrance and Phillip figure out that the strike cost Canada millions of dollars, much more than they gained, and set Stephen Abootman and his aides adrift on a piece of ice out on the ocean as punishment.
The "Prince of Canada" is introduced in the episode "Royal Pudding." During an elaborate wedding ceremony featuring a giant tub of maple pudding, the prince pulls off the princess's arm and the prince sodomizes himself with it. The ceremony had been put on hold when the princess was kidnapped, prompting a national emergency and a call to all Canadians worldwide to help recover their beloved princess.
In the Season Eighteen episode, "Freemium Isn't Free," The Canadian Bureau of Mobile Gaming create addictive mobile cell phone games that gets the boys to spend all of their money on a game that is marketed as "free". The Bureau, who make the Prince of Canada an accomplice to their fraud, is revealed to be operated by the Canadian Devil, named Beelzaboot.
Canada elects a "president" in the Season Nineteen episode "Where My Country Gone?," even though in previous episodes the leader of Canada had always been a prime minister. The new commander in chief, who bears a striking resemblance to Donald Trump, builds a giant wall to keep the Americans out. Canadians, meanwhile, realize the error of their ways in electing a lunatic and most of them end up moving to the United States, angering Mr. Garrison and leading him to sneak into Canada and fuck their president to death. A grateful Canadian diaspora then leaves the US to return to their home country.
In the Season Twenty-One episode "SUPER HARD PCness" Terrance and Philip are seen talking with Netflix about creating their own show, Terrance and Philip both seem really old and aren't as hyperactive as their old selves. The school's 4th grade boys are seen enjoying their new show that is set in a farm location but Kyle seems to have stopped finding the show funny. The boys all make fun of him for that, saying that he's like his mom that also doesn't like the show or Canada in general. Kyle has a moment of self reflection, looking at old Terrance and Philip clips and starts a group called Millennials Against Canada or M.A.C. for short which is a reference to Moms Against Canada in the South Park movie. M.A.C. interrupts the filming of an episode of Terrance and Philip saying that they need to stop, M.A.C. are demanding to speak with the president and get what they want when Kyle gets a call from him. Mr. Garrison says that Kyle is taking it too far and that they need to stop but Kyle won't stop. Garrison asks what he wants and he says that he wants a world where no one needs to be scared to be farted on and a world where laughter doesn't come at the expense of others, he then goes on to say that everything that Canadians have gone needs to be erased from the Earth, giving Garrison a small erection. Mr. Garrison sadly follows Kyle's orders and bombs Canada, killing presumably hundreds of thousands of Canadians. This is probably the biggest blow Canada has taken and will change Canada in South Park forever.

Canada plays a major role in Day 3. When the New Kid is sent to recruit the girls, one of the tasks he is given is to translate some documents from "the Kingdom to the North". After obtaining a passport, the New Kid comes to Canada to get the documents translated.
Once they get to Canada, they speak to the Prince and Princess of Canada, who direct them to the Earl of Winnipeg. He instructs the New Kid to kill some Dire Bears, then tells him that the Minister of Montreal has been imprisoned.
The New Kid speaks to the Prince again, who tells him to kill the Bishop of Banff. After the New Kid fights the bishop, he is given the option to spare him and take the dire pig testicles. The prince then refuses to help the New Kid, but the princess guides him to the Duke of Vancouver.
